Alfonso "AJ" Lincoln Ribeiro, Jr., 9
Ribeiro and Angela welcomed their first child, son Alfonso "AJ" Lincoln, together on Nov. 6, 2013. As the second eldest of the Ribeiro kids and the big bro of the house, Angela previously told PEOPLE that AJ has a "special bond" with his siblings.
"He loves teasing his big sis, like all little brothers. At the same time, he can be incredibly sweet," Angela praised her older son when chatting with PEOPLE in 2017. "When his little brother cries, AJ is always the first one to rub his back and sing 'Twinkle Twinkle' to him."
Like his dad, he's also got quite the personality! Talking with PEOPLE, Alfonso described AJ as "outgoing, charismatic, funny" and "loves making people laugh." As for one of his favorite hobbies? "AJ absolutely loves mini golf!" Angela added.
When AJ isn't busy on the green, he pops by the ballroom to hang with his dad on the set of Dancing With the Stars. Though believe it or not, the co-host's son has only visited the ballroom twice in his whole life! Alfonso shared the fun fact on his Instagram, writing that 2022 marked the first time AJ visited since season 19 — when he was one year old!
In celebration of AJ's 9th birthday, Angela wrote on Instagram that she "loves the amazing man he is becoming." She added, "He is wise beyond his years, full of personality, funny, opinionated, loving, baseball-obsessed and finance-minded."
She also noted that he is "the best orange juice chugger in all the land!"
Anders Reyn Ribeiro, 8
Alfonso and Angela welcomed their second child, son Anders Reyn, together on April 30, 2015. At the time of his birth, the DWTS co-host thanked his followers on Twitter for sending love, while Angela said that Anders was a "beautiful new addition" to their "growing family."
As for his personality, Alfonso has described him as "funny, loving, smart, cool, athletic, heart of gold and just plain awesome." His mom agrees, writing: "His heart is as big as the world, his smile lights up any room, and his eyes...those eyes of his can look right into your soul."
Angela also noted that he has a love for animals, revealing that he "can connect with animals and nature on another level." In addition to his kind and caring side, he is athletic and competitive. She said Anders "plays every single sport and game with more grit and heart than I've ever witnessed from a kid (or adult)."

Ava Sue Ribeiro, 4
Alfonso and Angela welcomed their third child, daughter Ava Sue, together on May 13, 2019. The Fresh Prince alum shared the news of her arrival on his Instagram, revealing that she sent her mom to the hospital on Mother's Day and she gave birth the day after.
Since her birth, Ava — who her mom has described as a "sweet yet fierce, charismatic, independent & insanely smart girl" — has grown up fast, but Angela "loves watching her grow." Similar to her siblings — and her father, of course — the proud mom has said she is "full of personality."
Plus, the youngest Ribeiro is "wise beyond her years" — and talented too! Ava "can sing beautifully on key without a single voice lesson and is already a master negotiator," Angela continued in an Instagram post on her fourth birthday. "I love her imagination, bravery, athleticism, and her ability to express and show love."
Both Angela and Alfonso described Ava as "tough" and "brave" following a scary spill she took the day before her birthday, which resulted in emergency surgery after falling off a seated scooter.
While appearing on Live with Kelly and Mark a few days after the accident, Alfonso further opened up about what happened to his daughter, revealing that "it was a very stressful weekend." He explained, "She fell and had basically road rash on her face and arm, and so they had to scalpel off all the skin."
When co-host Mark Consuelos asked Alfonso if Ava is going to be okay, the actor responded, "It's going to be a long process."
